New York: Simon and Schuster. Very Good in Very Good+ dj. (c.1979). First Edition. Hardcover. 0-671-22876-5 . [moderate shelfwear to bottom edge, remainder stamp on bottom page edges, otherwise a solid and unmarked copy; jacket has one tiny nick at top edge of front panel, minor dog-earing at top edge of rear panel, slight fading at spine]. Memoir by the veteran journalist/author/lawyer, a significant figure in the Los Angeles cultural and political scene during the 1930s and 1940s, before moving to New York to work for The Nation (he served as its editor from 1955 to 1975). His 1946 book "Southern California Country" remains a must-read classic about L.A. and environs, and his numerous other works chronicling various manifestations of social injustice in our society made him, per the jacket blurb, "the conscience of America," a man who "has demonstrated an uncompromising dedication to truth and justice." .
